Levi is a PhD student studying Biological Oceanogaraphy in San Diego, CA. Levi received his B.S. in Conservation Biology from UC Davis and M.S. in Ecology from San Diego State University. Levi has co-authored papers on salt marsh ecology, seagrass food-webs, and fish otolith geochemistry. Here is a link to Levi's CV and you can view the results of his previous research here.
Levi is most interested in how humans alter key processes & species interactions that effect the health and persistence of habitat-forming species such as corals and seagrasses. He is currently exploring the relative effects of herbivory and water quality on the the development of shallow-water coral reef ecosystems in Maui, HI. Levi is also an NSF-IGERT fellow and is working with fellow students on the "Beyond the Obituaries” project: an effort to highlight success stories in marine conservation.
